I would say no just because they are about to be fully vested in the B1G TV contract in a year or two where they'll get a LOT more in revenue than what a Big XII TV deal could give them.
Maybe TTUN fans and Harbaugh should be more worried about all the experienced players they're losing. theyre not cutting freshmen and sophomores they're cutting guys with 3-5 years in the program. When the chips are down in a close game who is going to lead you? Peppers? Give me an effing break. I'll take our seniors over their underclassmen ANY day.
Not worried. By the time Brax's shoulder is completely rehabbed he could very easily step in at QB IF something were to happen to JT and Cardale. I also think Stephen Collier has the talent he just needs the experience. Burrow and Gibson could also go into fall camp and open some eyes too. Not worried at all. More worried about DL depth.
This just makes Dantonio seem like a pouty brat if you ask me. Hoke had that same hard stance and look where it got him.
Another great thing about Brax changing positions, by the time his shoulder rehab is complete he could start at QB in the horrible event that both JT and Cardale go down. I have no doubt Brax will be back to full speed at QB at some point but I think this change is where he will be for most of the season.
Harbaugh is gutting what little experience he has from his roster. That'll really help them in close games.
No way in 9 levels of hell that Harbaugh is as good a coach as Urban. To suggest Harbaugh could do better with our players than what Meyer has is utterly stupid. That's par for the course for those people.
One thing I noticed in that JT clip is how fast Campbell gets 20 yards downfield. JT throws that ball less than 3 seconds after catching it.
+1 for The Last Dragon reference.
What no Mike Bianchi story on how this is really Urban's fault? I mean let's face it these players were obviously corrupted by a coach who left there 4 years ago.
Agreed. Fall camp competition is going to be crazy and if any of the veterans get complacent the younger guys will step up. I still think Parris Campbell's speed will help him get PT.
I thought it was our WRs reference to the "Shhh" Devin Smith gave the Sparty crowd when he caught that bomb from JT before halftime. Mike Thomas is just using it to trash talk with an inside joke, which is awesome.
They have medications for that.
They lost him because he wasn't admitted for his grades. That must mean Georgia will get him then.
Brax moving to WR plays well into Cardale's strength of throwing the long ball because of Brax's superior speed being applied to the long routes Devin used to run. There wont be many DBs that can out run Braxton.
But Brax's elusiveness also plays into JT's hands well because of how deadly accurate JT is on the short crossing patterns and quick screens we run. JT could hit Brax on a 5-yard pass and Brax go to the house with it.
And on top of all that we have a guy named Zeke in the backfield. Have fun with that Bud Foster.
Can you say new deep threat?
A conspiracy by OSU's coaches to beat the hell out of the opposition? You betcha ya.
As we learned in the Sugar Bowl and NCG, depth kills. OSU's conditioning was FAR superior than anyone else's. Imagine what they'd do with more depth?
He has a good fall camp next year he'll start. I'd LOVE to see the camp competition between him and Jalyn Holmes. Bet that will be epic.
What I've always found comical about Art's bellyaching is the fact that he maintains that OSU, the eventual national champion, did not deserve a berth in the playoffs because the Selection Committee erroneously gave "his" spot to OSU so that automatically means Baylor was better. Baylor had one of the WORST defenses that I have EVER seen in 2014. But naturally they were better than OSU (and TCU as well because they beat shitty Ole Miss) despite the fact they gave up more points in one game than OSU gave up in the B1G title game AND playoffs combined.
In my defense I think at least 50% of my downvotes went to MMan. But I do have at least 3000 upvotes.
Heartfelt condolences for your loss, ScarletNGrey01. The fact you still talk to your father doesn't make you weird. It makes you normal. I do the same with my late mother and she's been gone nearly 6 years. Whatever gives you comfort my friend :)
I'm not one to worry about how long we'll have Urban Meyer as coach. You cant control something that hasn't even happened yet. Urban is our coach of the present and I am sure as hell going to enjoy it while it lasts. I'm also of the strong belief that a certain recently departed OC could very well be the heir apparent, especially if he brings a certain former backup QB with him. Not worried about the future of OSU football.
Now let's go out and destroy people :)
I'll be happy with putting VT in its place in Week 1. After that we use the next several weeks getting our younger kids experience so we're even more loaded when we play Sparty and Harbaugh's Clown Circus/TTUN.
I'm sure that douchecanoe loves it because it means he can continue his jilted ex-lover schtick for another decade. Pandering to Urban's haters is the only thing that's keeping his career afloat.
